- Draw/paint more; at least one drawing and/or painting per month.

Looking for military advisers, otaku (preferably of the mecha musume / magical girl / moe variety), writers, previz artists, and p. much anyone who might have some ideas kicking around in their noggin.
The offer still stands; note or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can hammer out prices n shit, and then I'll add you to the list. I'll send you an initial sketch to let you know work's being done on it and then you can pay me.
The list is still there and it's still open to additions, just don't expect your shit to get done overnight. Also the way I do payment is you tell me what to do, I add you to the list, and then when I start on your thing I'll send you a sketch to assure you it's being worked on. Then you can pay me.
Also I'm trying to stop myself from spamming my excitement for Fanime. I really am. But there's going to be Papers, Please and Nonna and Katyusha are looking so awesome right now and I'm fucking shaking right now but it's probably just the coffee so I should make a rule that says no internet til the coffee wears off also run-on sentences.
Still taking commissions though; got a list at which I've been chipping away.
I'm officially opening myself up to personal commissions cuz I've already got some people (who won't be named) who were willing to pay me to do art for projects and that's really ace. Therefore, you should give me money because I spent all mine on dumb stuff (and also rent and school but those don't count) and now I can't afford food; in exchange I will art you a thing. Please note that this isn't some emergency commission thing; this isn't some noble cause that'll make the most out of your donation. In fact, I'll prolly just spend it all on greasy buffet food and/or booze.
Ultimately I leave prices up to how big the job looks when it's given to me, but expect something like a grayscale sketch of one thing or a character bust with no background to be something like 15usd. Something like a scene with folks shootin at eachother n' stuff blowin up and it's got color and a degree of refinement would prolly be something more like 25usd.
If you have a project, with a staff that's being paid and a budget and everything, give me more information and I'll prolly scale my rates back.
If for some reason you feel the inclination to take me up on this, email email@example.com or gimme a note.
Technically speaking, this is good news- like a lost child being reunited with her parents. To be honest, however, I was really looking forward to the idea of a new franchise from the creators of Homeworld- Iunno if Shipbreakers would really fit in all too well with the HW universe, but who's complaining?
Also, F2P model has been dropped. Oh well.
And while this is going to sound really fucking cheesy, I realized I already have some of the best shit one could get for their birthday- not only did I find I have a family and friends that give a crap and support me, but there are total random-ass strangers- who I've never met, never will meet, and in some cases have never even conversed with- coming out of the woodwork and giving me well wishes. I mean, sure, I may not be a goddamn internet celebrity getting showered in the such, but holy crap guys.
You people are spoiling me, and I can't thank you all enough for it.
